YOUNGBLOODZ Sound System

Remember when Sideshow and I had to beg The Assembly to let her play a Discotheque?

Well those days are long gone thank god, and now, she’s hosting a brand spanking new event at the venue in conjunction with SYNW.

Bitches be movin’ on up.

The event (an Annex party that will happen once a month) is called YOUNGBLOODZ Sound System and will comprise of the artists that she has featured on The Mash Up With Sideshow (Thursday from 16:00 – 18:00) on Assembly Radio.

Up-and-coming DJs and producers are offered the platform to showcase their style and skills in the form of a 25 minute mix. Once featured on her show, their mixes are made available for free download and a profile is posted on the YOUNGBLOODZ tumblr.

The aim of the YOUNGBLOODZ Sound System is to get the featured artists off the radio and on to the stage. This is an opportunity for said artist to define his/her brand and build a following through hard work and self-promotion.

The criteria to qualify for the YOUNGBLOODZ mix is performance experience of three years or less. I think this is fair. Sometimes I like to get intimate with my laptop in the early hours of the morning while we make sweet tunes – this does not necessarily make me a DJ.

Two weeks before the event, mixes will be posted for public vote via social media. The winners will be announced one week before the event. The more effort you put in to promoting your work, the better your chance of being part of the Sound System.

SO GET INVOLVED AND CHECK OUT THE FIRST EVENT AND VOTE.
